Three female punk rockers who mocked Vladimir Putin in a surprise protest inside Russia's main Orthodox church will be kept in jail, a Moscow court ruled on Thursday. Five members of the feminist band Pussy Riot - clad in brightly-coloured homemade ski masks and miniskirts - briefly seized the pulpit of Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral in February and chanted "Mother Mary, drive Putin away." Three band members have been in police custody since March and face up to seven years in jail on charges of hooliganism.
